Description

Geisha, as a cultivar has been around for a number of years and is listed in J.D. Vertrees book Japanese Maples, 2nd edition. Initially from New Zealand and imported by Talon Buchholz of Gaston, OR. This cultivar is a wonderful pink from spring through summer turning scarlet in the fall. Ideal sunlight would be morning through mid-afternoon with some shade protection during the hottest part of the day. Geisha is a slow growing cultivar and often grafted high for a better display of color. The signature variegation  for “Geisha” is a dark green contorted spot on a leaf and sometimes the whole leaf is contorted. Collector’s only please as Geisha is very temperamental.
